    "West Orange High School is chock full of teachers, and faculty that work hard for those who attend as students. It is a diverse school with many classes to choose from and an easy way to obtain information when needed. The only complaint I may have would be for the school to be more efficient when executing huge projects."

    "This school has honestly given me nightmares. The school is mostly a black population actually (NOT diverse) and I did NOT feel safe at all, attending this school. I failed miserably, academically. The teachers give you work that they expect you to know how to do without teaching accordingly. This school also has a history of TWO (that I know of) Teacher-Student inappropriate relationships. As the years go on, the school gets more ghetto. There is a fight every week. Weave all over the floors, kids smoking in the bathrooms, boys walking around with their pants halfway down their legs and vulgar boys cat calling girls in the most demeaning ways. So many student have gotten pregnant while being a student. Ive seen 4 with my own eyes while I attended this school but have heard of countless other cases while I attended the school. (Many students have also gone to jail) No teachers encourage or help you with your work. PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD ATTEND THIS SCHOOL."

    "WOHS is a great school for all students in the area. We have the most diverse student body that I have ever seen in a high school, and we are very proud of it. Our diversity shows through our many different talents, interests, and activities. We are all very proud to say we are from West Orange, where the teachers work hard to educate us and the students band together and stand up for what we believe in when we feel it is necessary."

    "I had a wonderful experience at West Orange High School. I've had an infinite number of opportunities and amazing teachers and mentors who have helped me navigate every step of the way. The resources available to me have been endless and I have had no complaints up until this year as a senior. I was unable to continue taking a language at an AP level due to lack of enrollment but for that to be my only complaint isn't bad. I've taken AP classes, been involved in sports, the arts, and numerous community service projects through the school. Also, the racial, socioeconomic, and political diversity of our school is incredible."

    "My daughter has had a great experience and has thrived at the high school. There is a great amount of clubs and sports available to choose from. I do not worry over her safety and believe she is receiving a well rounded education. The school also provides information and tools to get students ready for college. It is also up to the student and parents to get involved and use the resources available. The school has a large student body but they seem to make it work. There is always room for improvement so can't give 5 stars ."
